Healthy fats, welcome!!

Ingredients (serves 2-4)
1 avocado – ripe
1 tbsp. lemon juice – freshly squeezed
pepper flakes – to taste
salt - sea or pink – to taste
2-4 slices of bread of choice – I use GF or sprouted (easier to digest)
1/4 to 1/2 cup of red onions
1/4 cup diced tomatoes
1 tbsp. cilantro - chopped
1. In a medium-size bowl, place the avocado and smash it with a fork until desired
2. Add the rest of the ingredients + the optional ones and mix.
3. Toast the bread and top it with the avocado mix.
4. Serve and enjoy!
Note: this recipe serves 2-4 depending on the amount of avo-mix you use on each toast. If I have any leftovers, I use it as a snack with veggies or chips, or add them to a wrap or veggie sandwich.
Happy, healthy eating my friends!
